We really had not expected what we found here. What good fortune, what joy we experienced when we went, because it happened to be the last day of the Impressionist's exhibition, no wonder we found parking so difficult!

The entrance fee was very reasonable (€15 each from memory) for what was on offer to the viewer. We first enjoyed a light lunch but had not realised that if we had walked forward from the restaurant, there are a series of very pleasant small rooms to dine in.

Leisurely stroll to the galleries and WOW ...pinch me...there before us were some of the most exquisite paintings to enjoy.

There are many photos from previous visitors to the exhibition to see if you click photos.

The small town of Laren, we were later told, is an expensive place to live and the recently refurbished Museum - Concert Hall is a big draw. The newly laid gardens have been designed by Piet Oudolf.

It's a gem well worth visiting and this holiday, our second favourite Dutch Museum after the Mauritshuis in the Hague.

This was a treat to see such exceptional art that normally is not shown to the public because it is a private collection. The exhibit was of a very high caliber with works of art from Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso to name a few. What a beautiful and priceless collection. We appreciate that the family made this available for showing to the public. Something you seldom see.
The Singer museum is a small local museum in the heart of Lauren and offers limited car parking. For this exhibit the parking was overflowing and it was difficult to find parking anywhere in the village.

It was a real pleasure to see the newly reopened Singer Museum in it’s enhanced version. The choice of Impressionism and Beyond as the main draw appeared cryptic, but judging by the multitudes thronging the galleries and restaurant area, people appeared more tha happy to see the results of the renovation project.

I travelled to Holland (from Hungary) in the first place to see the Impressionists and Beyond exhibition in the Singer Museum in Laren. It was well worth the trip, the exhibition was rich in masterpieces, well laid out (albeit somewhat unorthodox in the timeline). Among other treasures, Signac’s “Tuna fishermen ready to leave Concarneu” and Henri-Edmond Cross’s “The lake in the Bois du Boulogne” were for me the highlights of the exhibition. It’s on until the 6th of May, 2018 - hurry there!

Singer is not only a museum but also a theatre and it has recently been renovated. It is now an absolutely stunning building that would not be out of place in Amsterdam’s museum quarter but you would not expect something of this magnitude in the quaint little town of Laren. Absolutely worth a visit. Especially now the newly discovered Van Gogh pen drawings are on display at Singer.
